Hello Friends:

Cactus...hhhmmm could it be milair? :)
He did say "airline".

CACTI is common enough for milair in the USA but I can only think of one user of CACTUS for 'military' in the USA

(as an aside, CACTUS is used by RAF Lossiemouth based aircraft here in the UK)

Most likely American Eagle, they use the callsign "Eagle Flight" and sometimes just "Eagle"

I hope it never gets fully integrated. Americas West is much more fun to fly than US Air.

These names stem from where their base of operations is at. I assume America West is based in Phoenix or Las Vegas? Air Tran uses the callsign Citrus as their base of operations is in Florida. Ex: " Citrus 847" is Air Tran Flight 847.
